US Air Force Deploying F-22s to Guam, Japan

HONOLULU (AP) – The Air Force plans to deploy the world’s most advanced fighter jet to Guam and Japan this month.

The Air Force said it will send a dozen stealth F-22s from Virginia to Andersen Air Force Base on Guam.

It will deploy another 12 New Mexico-based Raptors to Kadena Air Base on Okinawa in southern Japan.

Both units are expected to stay for about four months. They’re due to leave for their missions in late May.

The U.S. military first deployed the jets to Japan and Guam in 2008.

F-22s have unrivaled ability to fly at supersonic speeds for long periods and travel undetected by radar.
